Management policy in Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) is implemented by creating multiple ManagementPolicyRule objects. A ManagementPolicyRule defines one or more conditions/events that can occur in the FIM Service. It can also grant rights, map workflows to the event, or both.
When FIM receives requests through the FIM Service, FIM
evaluates all Request Management Policy Rule resources
resources with the ManagmentPolicyRuleType value set to
Request) that apply to that request as described in
Set Transition ManagementPolicyRule resources (ManagementPolicyRule
resources with the ManagementPolicyRuleType value set to
SetTransition) are used to map events in which
resources transition in or out of a set for any reason and
associate action workflows with those events. These
ManagementPolicyRule resources cannot grant rights.
